HD Down-Converter & HD-SDI Distribution Amplifer

The RH10MD is a 10-bit broadcast-quality HD down-converter and HD-SDI/SDI distribution amplifer. There are 4 re-clocked HD-SDI/SDI outputs and four down-converted SD outputs. The SD outputs can be individually configured as analog or SDI - analog can be component or composite. All HD formats are supported including 24p/psf with 3:2 pulldown. The SD output can be formatted for either 4:3 or 16:9 monitors. For 4:3 monitors both Letterbox and Crop modes are supported. The RH10MD is also dual-rate (HD/SD) and will support SDI inputs. 4 Ch AES embedded audio is passed through to the SDI outputs. The RH10MD is compatible with AJA's FR1 or FR2 frames.
